Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Indiana Dough Maps at Eastern Greene Elementary Indiana Dough Maps at Eastern Greene Elementary

Fourth grade classes made maps of Indiana using a flour/salt/water mixture to make the different terrains in Indiana. They also made the dough different colors to represent the different areas in Indiana.

Q&A with Legacy Project Coordinator Mandy Buskirk

What do you consider the key accomplishment of your Legacy Project?

  • The students learned about how diverse the terrain of Indiana is from Northern to Southern Indiana.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.

  • The students were able to create maps of Indiana that were textured with dough that they made with salt, flour and water. The sections of Indiana were made to be replicas of the natural regions of Indiana. Southern Hills and Lowlands, Tipton Till Plain, and Great Lakes Plain.

How/where are you preserving information and artifacts related to your Legacy Project?

  • We have a Bicentennial Wall in our school. We started the year with a mural of places in Indiana. We have added pictures, postcards, and brochures to the wall. Now we are adding our Legacy Projects with pictures, info, and the seal to our Bicentennial Wall. We are also in the process of creating a page on our school website.
